Like many of the items that make it into our Lingerie of the Week features, this is one Ive been watching for awhile. Michis been on the blog before, and I dig their edgy, provocative aesthetic. Through the use of mesh, colorblocking, cutouts, and other lingerie-specific features, Michi elevates activewear, asserting that it can and should be just as fashionable as outerwear.
Some people have argued that this garment fails as a sports bra because its obviously meant to be attractive and just as obviously meant for low-impact activities (yoga, yes, running, no), but I dont interpret those factors as flaws. Why shouldnt people wear beautiful active apparel if they so choose? Whats wrong with a gorgeous sports bra? Cant women be athletic and fashionable at the same time? Id hope so.
Michis Bionic sports bra retails for $95 and is available in sizes S, M, L. Large fits a maximum US 10, and Im thinking a smaller, shallower, more self-supporting bust profile would be ideal for this garment. Nordstrom also has the coordinating mesh leggings, so you can go all out with awesome mesh goodness at your next dance class. I admit to being fully intrigued by Michis boundary-pushing take on exercise attire and I look forward to seeing what they release in upcoming seasons.
Have you heard of Michi before? What do you think of their version of workout wear?
